I've mentioned before that one of my deepest, darkest secrets is that I can’t make biscuits. It’s actually pretty funny and everyone gets a good laugh out of it (hahahaha Mandy, that’s SO funny!) except it’s not funny and it makes me want to break stuff.
So I get really happy about quick-bread recipes like this one that I can make instead!
This is another of Mama’s recipes. These are light and fluffy and cheesy and really pretty unique. I tried to jazz them up once and added garlic but I forgot about the sugar that’s in them and… well, garlic and sugar do not go together (at least not in this recipe!). So, don’t what I did.
One of these days I’m going to learn not to munk around with my mama’s recipes.
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
3/4 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter
Combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a medium-large bowl and stir to incorporate. Add cheese and stir to combine.
In a separate bowl, combine egg, milk and butter and mix well. Add egg mixture to flour mixture and stir until just combined.
Spoon mixture into a greased muffin tin, filling each muffin about 2/3 full. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean,
Makes 10-12 muffins.
